Hear what our associates say about developing at Capital Group.
Last year, Capital donated more than US$25 million to 3,000 nonprofits on behalf of our associates. It’s not the numbers that make our giving program impressive – it’s the fact that all our donations are influenced directly by our associates.

As an investment manager, we improve millions of people’s lives through successful investing. And, as individuals and groups, our associates help thousands of nonprofits and their beneficiaries through their generous gifts of time, energy and resources.
How involved are our associates in our giving programs? In a word – very. Associates decide which charities we support through matching gifts, grants and service hours. From donating to local school bake sales to sponsoring refugees in Africa, Capital Group associates tell us what organizations they care about and decide where we allocate money.

I worked at Capital Group full-time (More than 3 years)
Progressive internal culture, Successful business results, Collaborative work environment, Thoughtful HR and Senior Management, Efficient Management structure and more than fair overall compensation
Upward career movement is slow, takes time to build a brand because of long tenured employees, generally few openings because of low attrition
Advice to Management
It’s an 86-year old firm that has successfully grown and succeeded through interesting times - stick to the impeccable values that have preserved the culture and step up the pace and competitive attitude to help the firm succeed in the ever-changing landscape of emerging competitors.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Capital Group (San Antonio, TX) in April 2009.
Phone interview, group of 2:1 interview face to face, drug test. Whole thing took one week. Phone interview 1 hour. Face to face also 1 hour. Drug test.
I was outsourced through an employment agency. So recruiter took care of details including drug testing.
Phone interview was pretty casual. Face to face was also casual. Wore suite, but tie is optional.
No negotiation. I was outsourced. They made an offer and that's it.
